The death star is coming to us in 2017


If everything goes well, the High-Repetition-Rate Advanced Petawatt Laser System (HAPLS) has the capability to produce a laser with over 1 petawatt of power in extremely fast pulses.

It’s going to be designed to operate at 10Hz, with each pulse lasting less than 30 femtoseconds. That’s basically 0.03 trillionths of a second for each pulse.

The 10 pulses per second with HAPLS could output many times more power in a longer period of time, which in this case is still just fractions of a second.Still, HAPLS will be able to run for hours at a time courtesy to helium cooling.

The HAPLS is using a “front-end” light source to create the rapid pulses in a double-chirped pulse amplification system.
